John McCain, whose ads skewer Barack Obama for his “celebrity” status, has his own close ties to show business. The 72-year-old was recently made TV-ready by makeup artist Tiffanie White who’s worked on So You Think You Can Dance and American Idol.
McCain paid the 2002 beauty-school grad $5,583.43 for her services, according to the Federal Election Commission.
In August, the New York Post reported that the neoclassical set built in Denver for Obama’s convention acceptance speech was designed by the same team that worked on Britney Spears‘ last tour.
The first presidential debate between McCain and Obama airs Friday night.
